This year at SUSECon, you will find some changes in SUSE certifications. There have been changes in both designations and qualifications.
The old certification levels were CLA (Certified Linux Administrator), CLP (Certified Linux Professional), and CLE (Certified Linux Engineer). The new certifications are SCA (SUSE Certified Administrator), SCE (SUSE Certified Engineer), and SEA (SUSE Enterprise Architect). These don’t directly map to each other.
Here is a chart that Shows how the new certifications work together:
There are four tracks to allow you to focus in certain areas; Linux, Cloud, Storage, and Management. The new addition to the mix is SEA. To certify as SEA, you must have 3 administrator certs, 2 engineer certs, and one other certification of choice.
The changes to SUSE certification will provide current training and industry recognition of core competency. The certification materials have been updated, providing an improved experience in the certification process.
